The daily surveys now take ages since they added some streaming sites. They still only reward with prize draw entries - does anyone still find them worthwhile?

  • I still do them but actually find the only time I seem to win anything is when I miss a few days. And them win a prize! Got a couple of £5 vouchers recently but that was the first wins for a few years! I have never won anything using the prize draw entries which you earn every day if you do the surveys! The best wins were years ago when I won £50 two months in a row! But that was when they had different draws to the current ones!

    I have won several £5 on the points prize draws inc the last one but I usually save the points up for weeks before having a go at the £5 draw - in comparison the higher prize points draws are poor value. On the B/S/G weekly draws I won often if I remembered to stop at bronze but have never had a £5 from gold which I usually reach.
    Since they added streaming and changed the format of the survey I find they take too long to complete for something that doesn't offer actual payment and not just prize draw entries.

    They have switched to points you can redeem for vouchers now - but don't show you what you can get until you have 1500 points (equal to 10 days of completing both TV and Radio surveys) - you get £1 for this = 10p a day for completing both surveys - I was thinking £15 for 1500 points was borderline if it was worth the bother but for just £1 they must be joking.

    I was curious to see what you can redeem them for, though haven't yet obtained enough points.  Sounds like it may not be worth it.

    I used up all my old points which I had just accumulated over the years. And did about 500 entries for each of the final draws and didn’t win anything! So over the years just the odd £1 or £2 from the other draws they used to do.

    Seems to be the same Ovations website as before (bit of faff getting the code sent to my mobile they then send an e-mail with the voucher code as before)
    Get 50p per title elsewhere for paid for streaming titles so that's no more GFK for me

    Still trying to get the £1 my current points are worth! Get the message Something went wrong while sending the validation code to your device. Everytime! Bored now with GFK!

    I got that a few times, just clicked for the code again but without getting it even though they said it was sent, messed around a bit with the 44 on my mobile number on the site, eventually got a code to confirm my mobile number and then tried again for a code for the voucher, got it and then they send an ovation code as they used to for the prize draws.

    Not only cannot get my £1 coupon but at the moment cannot even get on the site; just get the message

    Have tried updating password but no luck and still waiting for reply from helpdesk.
